It seems 2 Spanish females have been kidnapped according to early reports from or near to Daadap. This area is close to the Somali border, around 75 miles away.
Before all may run amok here i thought i would post this.
All in all this again does not have much implications on the toursim as it is in area no tourist wants or needs to be.
However, the pattern of kidnappings in Kenya is becoming a worry.
Tourists need to stay in main tourist resorts such as Mombasa (North and South coasts) , Malindi, and the main safari parks your going to be fine. The risk of kidnapping in these areas would be very very remote and in fact negligable.
What you dont want to be doing is heading north up the coast off the beaten track or staying in secluded places like the travel warnings instruct.
If you stick to this common sense approach then you will have a enjoyable time and wont notice any problems.
Im off next week to Mombasa.Edited: 13 October 2011, 19:08
